    t r u t h o u t | Campaign Cash: The Independent Fundraising Gold Rush Since "Citizens United" Ruling

    Here's the bottom line: we will no longer know which company provided funding for a campaign, and companies are pouring money into this mid-term election in amounts that dwarf the last Presidential race.

    Anyone besides me see a problem?

    I actually used DOS, you spoiled person you. You have no sympathies for the antique-y?

    Your piece is biased if all it talks about is the evil Republicans giving money.

    I suppose actually reading the article is out of the question, RGS?



    Tell me, how effective do you think that strongly-worded email to your Congressman is likely to be if he's received 100 xs more than ever before from Big Business to vote in a way you disapprove of? The Citizens United decision is a disaster and we need our legislators to overturn it....by constitutional amendment, if need be.

    My point is proven you are biased, YOU chose to ONLY quote the evil Republican donations. Further there are a lot more then 2 Liberal organizations giving out money. Or have you forgot Soros?

    I did not write the article, RGS. It's about two things: (1) huge increases in spending for PACs and political candidates and (2) the secrecy that shields these donors from public scrutiny. Are you suggesting this is okay as long as the donor is conservative?

    That's just asinine.
